Easy to peel hard boiled eggs cooked in Instant Pot, using foolproof 5-5-5 method. You will have perfectly cooked eggs every single time!
I love to cook a big batch of hard boiled eggs, refrigerate, and use them during the week. They are great for breakfasts, lunch (like egg salad), or even dinner (you can put them in a green salad, or a buddha bowl).
So, if you want to have perfectly cooked eggs every single time, you should use Instant Pot!
You can make hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel in just 15 minutes! To do that, I like to use a popular 5-5-5 technique.

How to make perfect hard boiled eggs in Instant Pot
If you have trouble cooking eggs on the stove, your pressure cooker will do a great job!
Pour 1 cup of water in Instant Pot.
Place a trivet inside and put the eggs on top of it.
Then, close the top and make sure it’s sealed. Set the cooking time for 5 minutes on high pressure.
When done, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, then open the valve to release the steam.
Now you can place the eggs in ice bath for 5 minutes. Done!

After the eggs are cooked and cooled, crack them from the top or by rolling it on the counter. The peel should come off easily without sticking to the egg white.
